Colton kicks off the show with “The Breakdown” by breaking down the Colorado XOs’ 2021 season before getting into some USA Rugby news, and all of the rugby you can watch this weekend (0:00-15:23). Following “The Breakdown”, Colton connects with Colorado XO director of rugby Mark Bullock about his thoughts on the Colorado XOs first season, what he learned, and which players could potentially be moving up to the MLR this summer (15:25-38:43). After the interview, Colton assigns some “Required Reading” and talks about taking a short break from the podcast in “The Loop” (38:45-43:41).
